4 Kentucky men accused of skimming operation in North Dakota
FARGO, N.D. (AP) – Four Kentucky men are accused of running a credit card skimming operation in North Dakota’s largest city.
The Louisville men in their late 20s and early 30s were arrested in Fargo late last week. They all face a felony criminal conspiracy charge that carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. One also is accused of possessing cocaine.
The Associated Press left messages with their attorneys seeking comment.
Skimming devices are used to illegally obtain account information when people use credit or debit cards to make payments. Thieves often put them on gas pumps.
Police don’t know how many victims there are in the Fargo area. They say the suspects might be involved in a multi-state skimming operation under investigation by federal authorities.
